"I’m James Taylor and I’m a professional autobiographer", says the celebrated folk singer at the start of this tender audio memoir. Through decades of music by one of the best-selling musicians of all time, who created classics like "Fire and Rain" and "Carolina in My Mind", James Taylor has doled out his history in the poetry of his work. Taylor says his early life is, "the source of many of my songs", and Break Shot is a tour of his first 21 years in rich, new detail.

Great insight for James Taylor fans
James Taylor brings his easy going nature to this audio book - sharing his life story from birth to age 21, when he was just becoming a music legend. I especially enjoyed hearing what inspired him to write some of his biggest hits and who exactly Karen and Suzanne were. James did not have an easy life growing up and it took courage to bare his soul this way. Essential listening for any James Taylor fan!
